  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the eggs and ranch dressing together in a bowl; set aside. Stir together the bread crumbs, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until evenly combined. Dip the chicken thighs into the egg mixture, then press into the breadcrumbs to coat all sides; place the chicken onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Cook the chicken thighs until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 50 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I give it a 4 for flavor but there are a couple of changes I suggest. First, cut the bread crumbs in HALF, there was more than enough to do a dozen chicken thighs. Second, cook these on a shallow rack in a baking dish, otherwise the bottom half of the chicken pieces get soggy.

This was ok but I didn't like it as much as my chicken recipe.

Very tasty and tender. My 21 month old even liked it.

Nothing fancy but good and moist. You definitely only need about half of the bread crumbs.

This is one of my boys' favorites. This works for chicken tenders as well (or chicken legs, if you'd rather use that). I use my own homemade dry ranch seasoning mix and I add Frank's hot sauce to the egg wash. Never fails to disappear.

This chicken was delecious and juicy. I had chicken tenderloins thawed out so I used that in place of the chicken thighs, but I think next time I will try it with the thighs just to see what that taste like! I liked that the egg and ranch were mixed together. I only use panko bread crumbs because it gives more of a crispy coating.

Maybe I did something wrong, but this did not turn out well at all. The flavors didn't seem to meld well and the breadcrumbs overpowered the chicken. I only ate 3 bites and gave up on it. Joe ate one thigh, and said it was "OK, but not a 'make again'"

It is tender but other than that, it is plain old breaded chicken. Aside from the little extra garlic flavor, nothing stood out.
